Authorities in Nevada say a candidate for sheriff in rural Nye County was arrested in a campaign sign theft case.

KLAS-TV in Las Vegas says an arrest report made public on Wednesday by the Nye County sheriff's office says Assistant Sheriff Rick Marshall was arrested about 7 p.m. Tuesday in Pahrump after a complaint by an official with a rival "Anybody but Rick Marshall" campaign.
 
Marshall didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.
 
Deputies reported stopping Marshall and another man in a pickup truck towing a trailer containing Marshall campaign signs and at least one uprooted sign from the rival group.
 
Marshall was arrested on possession of stolen property, conspiracy to commit a crime and resisting arrest charges.
 
Deputies say he held tightly to a metal bar on the truck in an attempt to prevent being handcuffed.
